Lord Mayor's Show 1621 Reconstructed
29th October, 2021
St Mary le Bow Churchyard, Cheapside, London
On Friday 29th October we'll be recreating elements from the 1621 Lord Mayor's Show at Cheapside, as part of a day of fun experiences. From walking tours, to a dress up procession, to the recreations itself, we hope to present elements of The Sun in Aries by Thomas Middleton from 1621 in the open air and free to all. And we'd like your help!
As part of the event, we'd like the audience and more committed fans of London to dress up and celebrate the imagery of the pageants. We're not looking for absolute historical accuracy, just to have a crowd that looks amazing and want to have fun. There'll even be a prize for the best costume in the crowd!
If you'd like to come along, get dressed up, or just be kept up to speed, give us a buzz with the form below.
COVID NOTE: Though an outdoor event, we will be following all COVID restrictions carefully, and ask that people respect the law (obviously) and the precautions the event will put in place. A lot of our planning will be run online using zoom and other digital platforms
